SCENE | Taos, New Mexico, 1937.

You know that tumblr, Dads are the Original Hipsters? I thought of that when I saw these photos from 1937 by Peter Stackpole for LIFE. Someone's (possibly) great grandparents are the originals in this case—they've got the denim, the hats, the boots, and even the trailer. I really want to know more about these people and why they were being shot, but couldn't find the article the photos were attached to, maybe the story never ran in the magazine. I bet they never thought they'd be published on a style blog 77 years later.
